You call the Pope the servant of the people, yet he does not minister to them. He lives a life of seclusion, shut away from tlie world.

The Catholic Answers

There are various ways of ministering to the needs of souls. The Pope administers, with the help of many officials, a Church of some 400 millions. Jesus predicted that the small seed would develop into a vast tree, and the looking after the vast tree is a very different matter from tlie initial care required. Any of the 400 millions may visit the Pope, but it is unreasonble to expect tlie Pope to visit the 400 millions, except of course by letter as he does whenever he issues his encyclicals.
